So I just got back from a whirlwind, probably once in a lifetime trip to New York City. I go as often as I can, but I never stay for more than a few days. Basically, I can't afford to stay very long. NYC is expensive.
But this year I have several things to celebrate/numb the pain for (my 30th birthday *cringe*, having lived well with diabetes for 25 years *yay!*, and my 5 year anniversary at my job *ug*) so I splurged. I spent 6 days in New York (Brooklyn, to be more specific) and got to do some pretty amazing things while I was at it.
